Piers Morgan Experiences The 'Pain Of Childbirth' Live On Good Morning Britain
Piers Morgan has arguably produced his finest TV moment - as he experienced the 'pain of childbirth' while hooked up to a simulator live on today's Good Morning Britain.
With many men - not all - but many, downplaying the trauma of childbirth on the female body, who better to try it out on behalf of all men than our Piers?
The 54-year-old breakfast TV host had the pleasure of experiencing the joys of a 'labour simulator', or a TENS machine as they're otherwise known. The machine emits electric pulses through the body and is used by woman during labour.

However, the pain women go through for the miracle of life didn't go down too well with Piers, and obviously, it was incredibly satisfying viewing.
Some may argue that Piers can sometimes come across as a bit of a drama queen. Remember that time he theatrically 'vomited' up a vegan sausage roll?
A few seconds in to the simulation, when most women are still at home being told to have a warm bath, Piers was visibly in pain - moaning to himself: "Do not give in."
The operator of the machine, who Piers referred to as a 'torturer', ramped it up slightly. He couldn't hack it though, ripping the pads off him after a minute or so, declaring: "That's enough."
Imagine if that's how simple it was, eh ladies?
Susanna Reid, his long suffering co-host, who is regularly seen cringing at his outlandish tirades, definitely seemed to enjoy it too.
Piers admitted: "That cannot be what childbirth is like, really. I can't believe that.
"Is that really what childbirth is like? I can't believe that."
In fairness to Pier, he then apologised for ever making light of childbirth, adding: "On balance, for the women of Great Britain, I probably owe you a slight apology.
"I'm very glad that we don't have to go through this. I've got to say, that was agony. If that is what you honestly go through then my respect for women in terms of childbirth has gone through the roof.
"That was painful. I'm never again going to joke about childbirth."
That's a start, Piers.
Anyway, Good Morning Britain viewers really enjoyed the spectacle, which surely brightened up everyone's dreary Wednesday morning.

To be fair, many viewers thought it was a nice change that Piers was the one shouting and screaming at the TV viewers rather than the other way around.
Maybe this the start of a softer, feminist Piers Morgan? Or maybe not.
